Node.js is an event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that need real-time communication between a server and the online users and can significantly accelerate the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides small amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills a subscription form, once any info is entered in any of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the website expands and there are lots of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser-based video games or instant messengers, for instance, and a lot of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All Linux cloud packages that we are offering come with Node.js and you can add this avant-garde platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to specify the path to your .js app and to select if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port chosen by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, change the location of the .js application or see the active instances’ output with just a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a really simple-to-navigate GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it comes with each semi-dedicated package that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to view the output of a given app or to start/restart/stop any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is available by default with each and every virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations regarding the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent option for hosting numerous real-time apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to make this. You will only need to include the location of the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to view the apps’ output and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to include the location of the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will designate a random port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint as to the total amount of instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you’ll exert total control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to add new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etc.
